Who’s your main mane? We’ve gone to the dogs and herded the cats, but up until now, the Letterboxd Showdown has ignored one of cinema’s finest and most important animals. From Eadward Muybridge’s 1878 pioneering fast-motion experiment all the way to Idris Elba as an inner-city cowboy, the horse has endured on film like no other creature. So, sorry to bother you, but we need you to pony up and fill the starting gate with your top ten screen steeds. Whether it’s Goliath, Trigger, Shadowfax or Mighty Byrd, this Showdown is electric. Bring on the dancing うま.
